Adam - excellent suggestion on the E-Myth! A must read.

I completely agree with Craig...AtlasShrugged...great read!!! I also enjoyed (although somewhat juvenile in it`s writing style) Raving Fans (I forget the author). The ideas it presented have really stuck with me throughout all of my business endeavors.
Craig...I always knew you had to be an Ayn Rand fan! I have (literally) every book ever written, including her Manifesto. I love Ayn Rand...although I think she became a bit radical in her older age...a bit...um...can`t think of the word...anyway...I love her writing. She is one of the only writers I can truly say I LOVE to read!
Craig - I am and have been a huge Rand fan for many years. Being an atheist does not automatically equate to non-spiritualism ... as I read between the lines in your post.
Craig and Richard,
How wonderful to find other Rand followers. I have to agree with Richard though. I think the idea of spiritualism is a very personal idea and does not necessarily have to equate to religion in anyway. I think if you dig deeper into her later years you will find that she did begin to entertain the idea of aspiritual side of existance.
Either way...I have been and will be a follower...although (as you mentioned Craig) some of her ideas were flawed...I believe it was merely her passion in the larger picture of Objectivism that blinded her to the smaller flawed areas of her vision. I believe that the overall idea of Objectivism is right on and should be taught more...refined...and embraced.
Do either of you subscribe to any of the publications (ie: The New Individualist, Impact (ARI), etc.)?
